A DAGENHAM based dance troupe wowed the judges and audience on the hugely popular TV show Britan's Got Talent.

Diversity, an 11-piece street dancing team from the 'Dance Works' school, in New Road, Dagenham, hit our screens with their impressive routine on Saturday.

The guys, aged between 12 and 25, were unanimously voted to go through to the next round of the competition, which attracts around 13 million viewers a week.

Celebrity judge Amanda Holden described Diversity as "Dynamic, funny, imaginative and superb."
